Summary The first two parts [of this book] present results from empirical research on psychological aspects of organ donation. . . . The first part includes the studies with an individual perspective, and the second part includes those taking a group perspective. The third part is more conceptual than empirical and deals with possible policy implications, social marketing strategies, and connections to other areas of study. Finally, the fourth part presents three responses adapted from the remarks presented by the discussants [at the conference upon which this book is based].
